beautiful works

I sat down for the demonstration/show. Aside from the temperature being hot (I don't think there was any way to avoid this) it was very informative.

We were disappointed to find that the day we travelled to Wimberley that they were not demonstrating that day. We did see some beautiful glass pieces on display and I did buy a piece, however, it would have been nice to see how the pieces are made. I wish I knew that they don't demo every day. I advise you...

We had a great day trip to this place! The kids loved it, and they were given a demonstration in glasswork art. Beautiful place to visit!

This is a true art exhibit. The best part is that for the right amount of money the art can go home with you. A few have gone home with me. it is worth a quick visit just to see their work even if you do not plan to purchase.

Be sure to call ahead and make sure they will be able to give you a demonstration. For $2 you can watch the workers create beautiful glass artwork. There is a small seating area where you can watch them make glass as they talk you through the process step by step. It is really interesting. I took my art class... More

My wife has blown glass in the past and we stopped in to look at the glass. We were pleased to see two employees making a piece in an area where the public could view the process. They had just started and the lady stopped repeatedly and explained what she was doing and would do next. We stayed for the... More

Stopped on a whim. The demonstration was interesting and educational. These people enjoy their work. Beautiful pieces for sale. If you have a little time stop by. Worth the drive.

My husband and I were in the Austin area for a quick vacation/family visit. While there, in our hotels brochure area, we found a brochure describing sights of the San Marcos and Wimberley area, including the Wimberley Glass Works. With our interest piqued, we decided to take a drive down to see the glass works. My goodness, we were so... More
